Total time
Serves: 6 servings
  • Vegetables :
  • * You can any vegetables you have on hand or you like!
  • I used pre chopped fresh vegetable packet available in my grocery store but you can chop your own :)
  • ⅓ green bell pepper, chopped in medium size cubes
  • ⅓ red bell pepper, chopped in medium size cubes
  • ⅓ zucchini, chopped
  • Handful broccoli florets
  • 6-7 baby corns, chopped
  • 6-7 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • For curry:
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 oz (1 can) red curry paste ( This is my FAVORITE BRAND to use)
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2-3 tbsp lime juice
  • 2.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • Fresh thai basil leaves (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Tofu or your choice of protein like chicken or beef
  1. Cook rice or noodles as per package directions.
  2. Meanwhile cook tofu. Cut tofu in small pieces and pat it dry using paper towel.
  3. Heat some oil in a skillet and lay tofu pieces without overlapping. Cook until crispy without moving. If you keep touching it, it will break.
  4. Check one tofu if it's done and then flip the rest and cook until crispy on the other side as well.
  5. While your rice/noodle are cooking on one side and tofu is cooking on another, start your curry.
  6. In a deep pot add 1 tbsp oil. To it add red curry paste and saute for few minutes until fragrant. Now add rest of the curry ingredients in there and using a whisk stir until smooth. Taste and adjust as per your taste if you need anything extra. Simmer for few minutes.
  7. Add your chopped vegetables.
  8. Add tofu or meat. Cook until you get the vegetables cooked to desired level. Add fresh thai basil leaves.
  9. Serve over steamed rice or noodles!
This is a quick version if you have time or if you can't find any goof Thai Red Curry Paste where you live, you can make your own paste at home! There are lots of recipes online for that!
